The incidence of secondary neoplasms of the testis has been reported at 0.02%–2.5%. The testis is a rare metastasis site for prostatic adenocarcinoma. A 62-year-old gentleman presented with neck swelling and testicular swelling. On evaluation, he was found to have metastatic carcinoma of prostate on 68-Gallium prostate-specific membrane antigen study with disseminated metastasis along with right testicular metastases. The patient underwent bilateral orchidectomy as part of the hormonal treatment, and the histopathological examination revealed the metastatic deposits on both the testis with the left testis showing only micrometastasis. Only few cases of bilateral testes metastases from the prostatic carcinoma are reported in the literature.
